    Hello,

    Just wondering if any of you know of a certain drug that has a longer half-life than Amiodarone? Katzung's noted that Amio's half-life is 13-103 DAYS! Any drug can beat that?

    Thanks.

    My text (Brenner) lists amiodarone as 40 days. Diazepam is 60 days, Aricept 70 days.

    And now you can appreciate Amiodarone loading doses.
